Book Description

Now in its fifth edition, this pioneering volume of Routledge’s ‘Key Guides' series offers clear explanations of key concepts, showing where they came from, what they are used for and why they provoke discussion or disagreement.

The new edition is extensively revised to keep pace with rapidly evolving developments in communication, culture and media, providing topical and authoritative guidance to transformational shifts from broadcast to digital technologies, national to global media and disciplinary to diverse knowledge. It includes:

  • Nearly 250 entries, covering what and how to study across this multi-disciplinary field;
  • 50 new entries: from algorithm and assemblage, dance and data, to woke and worldbuilding;
  • Updated references with 500 items and suggestions for further reading;
  • Revisions, updates and examples throughout.

For students and seasoned scholars alike, Communication, Cultural and Media Studies is an invaluable resource in an ever-changing landscape.

Reviews

Praise for the previous edition

Hartley is no chump; he’s a wry guide and a puckish professor, embodying the young-old spirit of the discipline he has inhabited and informed for decades. … He provides serious, solid definitions, but also cheeky marginal notes on the official history. … In every sentence, you feel the author’s personality: his earnestness, his honesty, his childlike desire to engage, to ask, to argue. 
Will Brooker, Kingston University, Times Higher Education.
